Israeli policeman charged over violent arrest of U.S. teen
An Israeli policeman was charged on Wednesday with assault causing bodily harm against a 15-year-old American of Palestinian descent during a protest over the revenge killing of the teenager's cousin days before the eight week war with Gaza. State Department at the time urged a "speedy, transparent and credible investigation and full accountability for any excessive use of force" against the American teen, a video of whose arrest was circulated on the Internet. "I just want justice for what the Israeli police did to me, and I donít want it happening to anybody else, especially another child," said the teenager, 15-year-old Tariq Khdeir of Tampa, Florida, in a telephone interview. The protests had erupted after the torching to death of the high school student's cousin, Mohammed Abu Khudeir, 16.
